Why do Religious Public Jewish Schools Lag in Science?

The findings do not appear to indicate that extra time spent studying Torah comes at the expense of science, researchers found. Rather, other factors appear to be involved, with one possible issue being the relatively large number of smaller high schools in the community.

It should also be noted that the study pertained to religious public schools, and not to the many semi-private high schools in the religious-Zionist community.
